The Nature of Reiki Healing

Reiki is a holistic system of energy healing. Practitioners connect with healing energy in the universe and channel it through their hands. Once limited to primarily healing people, it now also benefits companion animals around the globe. A growing number of animal rescues are taking advantage of its healing benefits.

This healing system is easy to learn. The ability to utilize it is transferred to students during a class that usually lasts several hours.

How Equine Reiki Works

Energy flows through the body of a horse in good health much like an electric current. However, a number of factors can interfere with this flow. Among them are physical injuries, trauma, dietary changes, emotional problems, training issues or a combination of these problems. Any blockage of energy can result in physical, psychological or behavioral problems.

An individual providing Horse Reiki, or Equine Reiki, restores positive energy flow into the animal’s body, correcting imbalance. Horses are particularly sensitive and quickly pick up on the healing a practitioner offers through hands-on or even hands-off means. Typically, the animal will approach and quickly become a willing participant.

Benefits of Equine Reiki

This healing system is safe and will never harm an animal. If a horse has experienced abuse or neglect, Reiki helps it to release emotional wounds. Treating horses and pets with Reiki helps relax and calm them, making it easier for owners and trainers to handle them and resolve behavioral issues. A calmer horse means a calmer, happier owner.

Reiki is extremely useful in conjunction with traditional veterinary care. It helps horses recover faster, saving owners anxiety and cost. Veterinarians trained in this type of healing have found it useful in treating travel stress and digestive problems, as well as settling mares who are new mothers.

Equine Reiki is also beneficial as a horse approaches the end of its life. It can provide comfort to a beloved animal, its owners and the staff members who provide daily care.

Helen Brand is a Reiki Master working in the South West of England & Wales.

I will utilise all of my training to make a difference to you. I offer specialised partnership Reiki sessions to horse and rider as well as one to one sessions.

Reiki services

The Reiki services I offer are for anyone wanting to feel balanced and relaxed but are especially ideal for highly sensitive horses. Just like us, horses, if unbalanced, may struggle to reach their full potential. I have found that racehorses and performance horses trained in any discipline respond to Reiki particularly well. Receiving Reiki whilst recovering from injury is also beneficial, helping the body to heal itself.
